Mississippi coach Hugh Freeze has reached an agreement with the school on a new contract.

Ole Miss athletics director Ross Bjork confirmed the deal early Tuesday morning, saying an "agreement is in place and we're really excited right now."

Bjork did not immediately disclose terms of the contract, but in November said both sides were working on a deal that could pay about $4 million per year. Freeze was previously on the first year of a four-year contract that paid $3 million annually.

The 45-year-old Freeze has led Ole Miss to a 24-14 record, including an 11-13 mark in the Southeastern Conference, over three seasons. The 13th-ranked Rebels have a 9-3 record this season and beat No. 4 Mississippi State 31-17 on Saturday in the Egg Bowl.
